Henry Bregstein, co-chair of the Financial Services practice, was quoted in a Fundfire article on the topics that were discussed at a recent ACG New York forum panel discussion on illiquid alternative investments, which Henry created and moderated. Henry and the forum panelists discussed how private equity shops, and in some cases hedge funds, are building more vehicles with assets that often cannot get financed through banking relationships or that have unique risk-reward underwriting characteristics. The vehicles take on many forms in both private equity and hedge fund formats, including specialty funds and sidepocket funds. In addition to litigation finance and life insurance and life settlement assets, Henry said, "Yet other examples in a private equity structure are funds built around classic cars, film finance, or credit card receivables."
